    Fuel cell test stands??

    Global thermalelectric?

    Do you know anyone there hiring? I'm in 2nd year Electrical engineering, but that doesn't really mean much at all. I'm looking for assembly things, or miscellaenous jobs that I can learn to do.

    I took Mechatronics at SAIT. This job isn't directly related to my education but I'll take it until I find something more suiting or better paying. I mainly do panel assembly, fabrication, a little trouble shooting and helping people w/ questions in the shop.

    They're not hiring now, but it's possible in the near future. I'll PM you when they are and you can email them your resume.
    Global thermalelectric, yes. As well as General Electric.

    Most or all of they're computer systems are built through the place I work at. Mem X. They are a big client. Hope they can get a product soon. Or maybe they have one now. I dont keep track.

    68 hours/week? That's nothing, last July I landscaped for 32 days straight, most in July, 301 hours. Not only that but it was re-doing Redwood Meadows Golf Course and it was ~38 degrees for a couple weeks!

    Oh well...your job sounds a lot more fun! Enjoy the $$$

    that would have been my guess. Except its Global Thermoelectric, our company is one of their suppliers.
